    If you someday move up to a larger tank, the startup costs increase exponentially. A properly-setup 55 gallon can cost you between 2 and 4 thousand dollars to start.

    I have a funny story to. My friend was over one day and he thought my nano tank was amazing. So he decided he wanted one. He did about a weeks worth of research and went out and found a 75 gal used tank with a bunch of stuff for $500. However there were no lights, no good powerheads, etc. etc. He has already spent another $500 on lights. Started putting fish in there yada yada. Either way he has a lot more stuff to buy to like a protein skimmer and he never wants to listen to me.
    No matter what kind of ideas you get the bigger the tank is the more it is going to cost you.
    I would say to setup my 10 gallon nano initially from scratch it cost between $400 and $500. With the rock, sand, salt, equip, lights, etc.
    Then I probably put another couple hundred into fish and corals.

    Zackish,

    Along the same line as your story...My brother saw a 120g tank on craigslist that a guy was practically giving away. He called me and said that he was going to get it for me, and I had to beg him not to. In the end, I told him, ok, you can get it if you will give the the other $5000 I will need to finish the setup!
